San Lyon at The Woodchopper’s Ball

February 27 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm

San Lyon

San Lyon is a colorful French Swing quartet.  Their music mixes early 20th-century Parisian Hot Club Jazz, American Jazz standards from the 1920s to ’40s, and original music.  They are based in Los Angeles, California where they have started creating shows tailored to dancers.  The band was formed in 2019 by Paige Herschell from San Antonio, TX on vocals, melodica & kazoo; Jenna Colombet from Lyon, France on violin, vocals, and drums; Katie Cavera from Southern Indiana on bass, banjo, and vocals; and Dani Vargas from Santiago, Chile on guitar and vocals.

 

The After-Hours Jam Session is now a regular monthly feature at the Woodchopper’s Ball, happening on the last Tuesday of the month, 11:30pm-1:30am, immediately following our regular Live Music Dance Party.  Spread the word!

    • Held in the lounge, with the bar staying open extra late, until 1:30am, and with space for dancing!  Take a nap Tuesday, and plan to work from home on Wednesday–this jam party will swing until late!
    • Included with admission to the Live Music Dance Party,  $15 ($5 after 11:00pm)!  Must arrive before doors close at 12:00am midnight.
    • Musicians of all levels welcome!  If you play an instrument or sing, here’s your chance to jam with other musicians.

The Woodchopper’s Ball, San Francisco’s swing hot spot, is a weekly Tuesday night swing dance event held at the historic Verdi Club in San Francisco’s Mission district. Named after the classic 1939 swing tune by the Woody Herman Orchestra (and their biggest hit!), it features monthly classes, a full bar (21+ only), and a dance party with a drop-in lesson and the largest variety of live swing dance music in town!
